The 2019 Queers & Comics Conference will be held May 16-18 at the School of Visual Arts. Over 140 LGBTQ cartoonists, scholars, publishers, and librarians will participate in this historic event spotlighting five decades of queer cartooning.
This year's two keynote presentations will be given by BFA Cartooning faculty member and SVA alumnus Phil Jimenez (Tempest, New X-Men, Wonder Woman, Historia) and Paige Braddock (Jane's World).
This conference offers a unique opportunity for LGBTQ cartoonists to network, build community, discuss their craft and foster new work, and for readers and fans to immerse themselves in this unique artistic community. Similar to a writer's conference, this forum allows participants to celebrate, analyze and document queer comics creators and their work.
